Trail Tip Tuesday – SNOWPACK and AVALANCHE NEWS FEATURE – May 28, 2019. Unusual winter-like conditions still exist along much of The Colorado Trail. Another snowstorm came through last week and temperatures remain unusually cool, slowing the snow melt. The CT segments we consider snow passable are still (only) Segments 1, 2, 3, 5, and 14.
Connie’s adoption is deep in the Weminuche Wilderness Area above Silverton, CT Segment 24, and it has the worst avalanche problems we’ve learned of so far. It might take our volunteers multiple trail seasons to improve this.
Still, we remain upbeat about the 2019 trail season and all the adventure that’s waiting along The Colorado Trail. A TV 9news interview with Bill Manning, the CTF executive director, appears here.
